Huskies brush aside Matadors

 

SEATTLE – Desmond Simmons scored 13 points to lead Washington to a 74-51 win over Cal State Northridge on Thursday night.

Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten added 12 points each for Washington (6-5).

Aziz N’Diaye came off the bench to score 11 points and grab seven rebounds. The Huskies’ center missed the previous two games because of a right knee sprain.

Stephan Hicks led the Matadors (3-7) with 13 points.

The Huskies never trailed against Northridge after having their 32-game nonconference home winning streak snapped by South Dakota State on Sunday.

C.J. Wilcox made a corner 3-pointer to put Washington up 47-21 early in the second half. Abdul Gaddy delivered the crosscourt pass to Wilcox for his sixth assist of the night. Gaddy was a distributor most of the night, finishing with eight assists and five shot attempts.

Wroten and Shawn Kemp Jr. hooked up for a highlight on the fast break. Wroten bounced a behind-the-back pass to Kemp for a dunk, and a 69-34 UW lead.

Ross made a layup to push Washington up 10-0 just 2:34 into the game, in contrast to Sunday’s blowout loss against South Dakota State. The Huskies were down 7-2 to the Jackrabbits at a similar point.

The Huskies were up 16-4 before Aqeel Quinn made the Matadors’ first field goal with 14:02 remaining in the first half.
